Mercato PSG: the record bonus paid to Kylian Mbappé shocks
PSG is getting ready for a busy summer transfer window with high ambitions. However, a recent revelation by Le Parisien newspaper about Kylian Mbappé‘s bonus is causing a headache.
The newspaper has unveiled the incredible bonus received by Kylian Mbappé for agreeing to extend his contract with PSG instead of joining Real Madrid.
Mercato PSG : How much did Mbappé get to extend ?
According to Le Parisien, Kylian Mbappé‘s extension bonus amounts to €180 million, a record amount in football history. This bonus will be paid in three installments of €60 million each and will not be included in the 2023 balance sheet. This new development could provide PSG with additional financial leeway to recruit new high-level players during the summer transfer window.
Kylian Mbappé‘s decision to extend his contract with PSG instead of joining Real Madrid is therefore paying off, literally. The Bondy-born player had been courted by the Spanish club with a tempting offer, but he eventually chose to remain loyal to PSG, and we now understand why.
This bonus highlights the importance of Kylian Mbappé to PSG‘s executives, but it also raises questions about the club’s financial expenses. PSG supporters are eagerly awaiting the summer transfer window movements to see if the capital club will be able to further strengthen for the next season after such wild spending.
When will Neymar Jr return from injury?
One thing is certain: Kylian Mbappé‘s contract extension is a major coup for Paris Saint-Germain, which continues to reap all the benefits. Unlike Neymar Jr and Lionel Messi, who are lagging this season, the former AS Monaco player is carrying the capital club on his shoulders. His personal performances are a significant factor in PSG‘s first-place position in the Ligue 1 championship.
Mbappé deserves his money as he is currently leading the league’s top scorers list, tied with Lille‘s Jonathan David, although the latter is light-years away from earning such sums of money. It should be noted that Neymar is absent due to injury, and his return is not expected until June 30th, the end of the season.
